        THE NOVELS AND STORIES

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1937. No. 322 OF 970 COPIES of the Autograph Edition, volume I SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR n. Hardcover. An Unopened Set in the Original Oversized Dust Jackets. 232 x 156 mm (9 1/8 x 6 1/8"). 13 volumes. No. 322 OF 970 COPIES of the Autograph Edition, volume I SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Publisher's original cream-colored linen over gray-blue linen boards, covers with author's cipher in gilt, black spine label, top edges gilt, others edges untrimmed and UNOPENED, and IN THE UNCOMMON ORIGINAL OVERSIZED DUST JACKETS. Containing 12 frontispieces with tissue guards (volume XIII without frontispiece, as issued). Crane AA1, first issue. Faint browning to spines of a few of the dust jackets (this browning extending onto rear panel of one jacket), two jackets with some tears and wrinkling along the bottom fold-over flaps, minor rumpling and tears to jacket edges elsewhere, but still AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE SET, the unread volumes perfectly preserved, and the jackets with basically minor defects. Designed by Bruce Rogers, this is a remarkably well-preserved set, complete with the rarely seen dust jackets, of the collected works of eminent American novelist Willa Cather. After a youth lived on the Great Plains of Nebraska, Cather (1873-1947) had her first short story published in 1892 at age 19 and never looked back-except in the sense that her works dealt with the Nebraska she grew up in, the destruction of provincial life, and the fall of pioneer culture. Limning those themes, "O Pioneers!" and "My Antonia," respectively published in 1913 and 1917, are among her most popular and enduring novels. She won the 1923 Pulitzer Prize for her novel "One of Ours," which tells the story of a Nebraska man at the turn of the 20th century. And "Death Comes for the Archbishop (1927) is the work that is perhaps most studied, generally being included among the 100 best 20th century novels in English. Her body of work, written over an extended period of time, is impressive. Bruce Rogers (1870-1957) is among the greatest book designers of the 20th century. Rejecting modernism, he was known for his "classical" style of design, avoiding unbalanced arrangements and rarely using sans serif type faces, preferring dependable roman faces such as Caslon and his own Centaur. The oversized dust jackets have accomplished their intended purpose to the full here, completely sheltering these volumes from light, dust, and soil, preserving them in an absolutely immaculate state. Not surprisingly, these wrappers are rarely seen: since 1975, ABPC records 20 sales of this edition of collected works, but just three are in dust jackets. And the particular design of the jackets--where the paper folds over the top and bottom of the text block--makes them even more than usually susceptible to wear and tear.

        Our Wandering Continents

      Edinburgh: Oliver and Boyd,, 1937. An Hypothesis of Continental Drifting. Octavo. Original dark red cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. With 48 maps and diagrams. Near contemporary gift inscription to front free endpaper. Boards gently splayed, head of spine slightly bumped, light crease to fore margin of first few leaves. An excellent copy in a likewise excellent jacket with toned spine and rear panel, lightly nicked and chipped extremities, minor loss to head of spine, and a short closed tear to top of front panel. First edition, first impression. The South African geologist Alexander Logie du Toit (1878?-1948) was an early supporter of the theory of continental drift proposed by Alfred Wegener (1880?-1930). However, du Toit differed from Wegener in terms of the number of supercontinents envisaged: Wegener suggested a single original continent (Pangaea) while du Toit instead proposed two continents (Laurasia and Gondwana).

        On the interaction of elementary particles II [- IV]. 3 parts

      1937-38 1937 - First Japanese Physicist to Win the Nobel Prize in Physics Yukawa, Hideki (1907-81). (1) [with Shoichi Sakata] On the theory of the -disintegration and the allied phenomenon. Offprint from Proceedings of the Physico-Mathematical Society of Japan, 3rd series, 17 (1935). 467-479pp. Original printed wrappers. Presentation Copy, inscribed "With the compliments of the authors" on the front wrapper. (2) [with Sakata] On the theory of internal pair production.

Offprint from Proceedings of the Physico-Mathematical Society of Japan, 3rd series, 19 (1937). [1], 712-713pp. 271 x 195 mm. (4) [with Sakata, Taketani and Minoru Kobayasi] On the interaction of elementary particles II [-IV]. Parts II and IV are offprints from Proceedings of the Physico-Mathematical Society of Japan, 3rd series, 19 (1937) and 20 (1938); Part III is a mimeograph typescript bound similarly to the other two offprints.

First Editions, Offprint Issues; First Separate Edition (?) of no. (3), Part III. In October 1934 Yukawa, then a lecturer in physics at Osaka Imperial University, proposed a unified theory of nuclear forces in which a set of hypothetical particles&#151;now known as mesons&#151;was responsible for the force binding positively charged protons and neutral neutrons together in atomic nuclei. The following year Yukawa published his paper "On the interaction of elementary particles" (not offered here), in which he set forth his meson theory, calculated the mass of the proposed particle (about 200 times that of the electron) and suggested that these particles might be present in cosmic rays. In 1936 Anderson and Neddermeyer reported anomalous cosmic-ray tracks made by particles intermediate in mass between the electron and proton; their observations were confirmed in early 1937 by several other cloud-chamber groups. In June 1937 Oppenheimer, Serber and Stueckelbert sent letters to the Physical Review calling attention to Yukawa&#146;s meson theory, and from then on its success, and that of its author, was assured. In 1949 Yukawa received the Nobel Prize for physics for his prediction of the existence of the meson. Despite its later success Yukawa&#146;s meson theory attracted almost no attention in the two years following its announcement, largely because physicists were reluctant to accept the possibility of a new particle without direct observation confirmation. During this fallow period Yukawa published several joint papers with his student Shoichi Sakata on electromagnetic and nuclear phenomena. We are offering the first two of these joint papers in rare offprint form with even rarer presentation inscriptions. The paper on beta disintegration (no. [1] above]) is remarkable in that it contains the only other published reference to the meson prior to 1937. This paper includes "an important calculation of the inverse beta-decay process: the absorption of an orbital electron by a nucleus with the emission of a neutrino. [The paper] was noteworthy, not only because it was the first to call attention to a new effect but also because it was the first additional application of the meson theory [emphasis ours] and thus showed that Yukawa and Sakata had faith in it" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography [Supplement]). In 1936, heartened by Anderson and Neddermeyer&#146;s discovery of a new unidentified particle in cosmic rays, Yukawa returned to meson theory. (It should be noted that Anderson and Neddermeyer&#146;s particle, although widely assumed at the time to be the one predicted by Yukawa, is in fact a decay product of t [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        An Essay on Flecker

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran, 1937. First American Edition. Softcover. Very good. 4 pp, in stapled wrappers with light handling wear, a few tiny spots to front wrapper. Compliments slip from the Keeper, Department of Printed Books at the Bodlein Library, Oxford, laid in. According to O'Brien (A199), this essay was written in 1925 for publication in a periodical, but did not appear in print until 1937. The English edition published by Corvinus Press was limited to 30 copies, while "56 copies were printed to secure American copyright." It later appeared in Men in Print (1940). Lawrence met poet and British civil servant James Elroy Flecker and his wife in Lebanon in 1911. He visited them several times, and in 1913 worked with Flecker in smuggling some rifles from a British ship in Beruit harbor to the British consulate in Aleppo (Tabachnick, p. 58-59).

        Georgica - Les Géorgiques de Virgile. Quatre livres en 2 portefeuilles (4 Bücher in zwei Mappen, four volumes in two folders)

      Paris Philippe Gonin + 1943 (acheve d'imprimer 21 mars 1950) 1937 - Zwei büttenpapierbezogene O-Halbpergamentmappen in jeweils einem büttenpapierbezogenem O-Schuber. Band I: Schuber, Titelblatt und 4 Blätter des Vorwortes im oberen Rand etwas stockfleckig. (4 Bl.), 174 Seiten, (6 Bl.). Band II: (6 Bl.), 154 Seiten, (5 Bl.) auf unbeschnittenem kräftigen Büttenpapier mit dem Maillol-Wasserzeichen hockender weiblicher Akt extra für diese Ausgabe angefertigt. Die beiden Mappen beinhalten den Text von Vergil in französischer und lateinischer Sprache und 122 O-Holzschnitte von Aristide Maillol, 4° (33,8 x 25,3 x 4,7 cm). Das erste Buch der Georgica behandelt den Ackerbau, das zweite den Obst- und Weinbau, das dritte die Viehzucht und das vierte die Imkerei. Zwischen den eigentlichen landwirtschaftlichen Themen werden jedoch zahlreiche Mythen erzählt und poetische Reflexionen eingeflochten. Dies verdeutlicht, dass Vergil weniger eine sachliche Belehrung anstrebte, sondern seine Dichtung die kulturelle renovatiodes des Augustus unterstützen sollte. So dient die idealisierende Schilderung des Bienenstaates als Gleichnis für dessen Herrschaft. Die Georgica gelten mit Recht als eine der herausragenden Dichtungen der antiken Literatur. --- Diese Ausgabe ist das Exemplar Nr. 579 von 750 gedruckten Exemplaren und das letzte Holzschnittwerk von Aristide Maillol! 0 gr.

        Qué Haces tú para Evitar Esto? Ayuda a Madrid. [Cartel original de la Guerra Civil Española.]

      Ministerio de Propaganda, s.l. (Madrid) 1937 - 39.5x27.5. Este cartel, uno de los más conocidos y clásicos de la batalla propagandística del gobierno republicano se publica también en formato mayor (80x56) y en francés y inglés. Es anónimo y aunque algunos lo han atribuido al cartelista Augusto Fernández, su bella simplicidad el juego entre el fotomontaje y la llamativa tipografía se acerca considerablemente más a los estilos de Josep Renau y Manuel Monleón. En sus clásicas contribuciones a la revista anarquista Estudios a principios de los años 30 ambos artistas se habían convertido en los maestros del fotomontaje en España, pero en sus carteles de la Guerra ninguno de estos artistas empleó mucho esta técnica (en realidad los fotomontajes representan una parte muy reducida de los carteles republicanos); Renau, en su exilio en la Alemania comunista seguiría esta linea, creo, casi a la exclusión de otras. Y hay un cartel que lleva la firma de Renau ('Pueblos de Levante! Los hijos, las madres y las compañeras de los héroes de Madrid. ' Renau MC1515 1936 SD Valencia PC Sbhac) que reproduce cada uno de los 3 elementos pictóricos de este imagen: la casa cortada en dos por las bombas (incluso parece la misma), la madre con el niño y los aviones en silueta. En todo caso, sea quien sea el autor, este y uno de los más icónicos e impactantes carteles de la Guerra. Muy buen ejemplar, con dos pequeñas faltas en el margen en la esquina izquierda superior (que no se acercan a la superficie impresa); marcas de chincheta en en margen en las cuatro esquinas; papel muy limpio, sin doblez. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.

        The Late George Apley: A Novel in the Form of a Memoir

      Little, Brown & Co. 1937 - First printing (cr: P date). With "Lovely Pearl" at top of p. 17 although the significance of that alleged point of issue is unclear. Blue cloth, gilt titles to spine and front board. Red topstain. Book very good with faint vertical streaks to a number of pages evidently caused by a malfunction on press and common to this title. Topstain shows some evidence of waterspotting. Inscribed by Marquand and dated 01/37 on a tipped-in leaf that has come unbound from ffep. DJ essentially whole but with a brown paper backing applied to reverse; evidently for preservation as it also shows evidence of waterstaining, small holes/wear at spine, esp front spine fold. Also age-discolored with several small surface tears to front panel. Price of $2.50 however is intact. Rare, both in first and signed. 354 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Addresses of the President of the United States on the Occasion of His Visit to South America, November & December 1936

      [Washington, D.C.]: United States Printing Office, 1937. First edition, one of 75 (but probably one of only 7 in this binding). 97, [3] pp. 4to. Bound in full light bown pigskin, with metallic plaque of the Seal of the United States inset into the upper cover, now with a fine patina, pigskin doublures and silk endpapers. Fine. In quarter leather and marbled boards pull off slipcase. First edition, one of 75 (but probably one of only 7 in this binding). 97, [3] pp. 4to. A sumptously produced White House Christmas book, commemorating FDR's nearly month-long diplomatic mission to promote "hemispheric solidarity" with South America. The book was issued in an uncertain, though undoubtedly strictly limited, number, with two issues--in full pigskin, as seen here, and half pigskin and marbled boards. The colophon calls for 75 copies, with the more desirable full pigskin binding scheduled to run to 50 copies for distribution to South American dignitaries and the half-leather isssue of a planned 25 copies reserved for FDR's personal use and distribution at the holidays. Documents at the Library at Hyde Park suggest that the full edition of 75 copies was not achieved (cf. Horowitz, "Carmichael Collection") and that as few as seven were ever bound in full pigskin - See more at: http://www.jamescumminsbookseller.com/pages/books/238988/franklin-d-roosevelt/addresses-of-the-president-of-the-united-states-on-the-occasion-of-his-visit-to-south-america#sthash.vk0aHp3x.dpuf.

        On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem' [with:] 'On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem. A correction.' [in:] Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, series 2, vols 42-3

      London, C.F. Hodgson and Son, [1936-] 1937 - Two vols, 8vo (253 x 165 mm), I pp 230-265 (the entire vol [iv] 559 [1, blank] with folding table); II pp 544-546 (the entire vol [iv] 546); fine, clean copies in contemporary or near-contemporary brown buckram, one corner slightly bumped, no institutional markings, slight discolouration to the loweer front cover of the second volume. £18,500First edition of the journal appearance (there was also a very rare offprint) of Turing's great paper, the conceptual foundation of modern computing. In this paper Turing proved that there were uncomputable numbers, in other words that there were existed mathematical problems that were unsolvable and therefore that mathematics was undecidable. In so doing he also established that the 'Turing machine' (a name coined by Church) would be able to compute all computable numbers.In 1928 David Hilbert had posed the Entscheidungsproblem, the outstanding problem of mathematical logic at the time. This asks whether there is an algorithm that can determine whether any given mathematical statement is true or not. 'Inspired by the human computer (i.e., the human engaged in computation), Turing described a notional machine that could read and write symbols along a segmented tape. The machine itself would be capable of assuming various internal states that, together with the input of a single symbol along the tape, could lead to a few primitive atomic actions. Based on the state and the current symbol, each configuration specifies a change (or not) of symbol, a move right or left, and a next state. Working under some straightforward assumptions about the finite and discrete nature of the machine, Turing was able to demonstrate the wide range of numbers (equivalently, the wide class of functions) that could be computed and, moreover, able to specify a single machine, the universal machine, that would be capable of simulating the computations of any such machine. Turing's characterization has come to be seen as a more compelling account of what it means to be effective, mechanical, or algorithmic than any of the various extensionally equivalent formulations offered by his contemporaries' (New Dictionary of Scientific Biography v 7 p 83).The Correction was published in order to remove some formal errors made in the first paper which had been spotted by the Swiss mathemtician Paul Bernays.Origins of Cyberspace 394; Tomash and Williams T61, T62

        An important relic of the 1937 Hindenburg disaster, collected by the chief boatswain in charge of the mooring lines at Lakehurst?who was also a survivor of the Shenandoah

      [Lakehurst, NJ], [May 6, 1937]. 27". "A 27"" length of rope, recovered from the wreck of the Zeppelin airship, Hindenburg, after it crashed in Lakehurst, New Jersey on May 6, 1937. Expected wear.One theory behind the start of the blaze that so rapidly engulfed the Hindenburg, was that when the mooring ropes made contact with the ground, they completed a circuit allowing a buildup of positively charged ions to make ground which initiated a spark. However, this, like many theories surrounding the airship disaster, remain inconclusive to this day.The rope was recovered by Frederick J. ""Bull"" Tobin (1892-1978), one of the chief boatswains managing the mooring lines at Lakehurst, New Jersey when the Hindenburg caught fire and crashed to the ground in flames. Tobin became famous for ordering the fleeing ground crew back to their posts in order to assist the survivors. Twelve years earlier , Tobin survive the crash of the airship U.S.S. Shenandoah in southeastern Ohio. He had been asleep near the tail of the airship at the time, and managed to escape just as the rear section crashed to Earth (John Toland, The Great Dirigibles: Their Triumphs and Disasters, 1957, p. 140-141, 328)."
